The various security units have been a subject of concern for some time now. Many have complained about their violent posture and mode of operation. The opposition NDC have chastised the current police service as have having recruited party people and foot soldiers into the system. This was evident with shots of some police men popped up on social media.
On ‘Good Morning Ghana’, Annie Ampofo sat with Lawuratu Musah-Saaka on Metro TV’s ‘Good Morning Ghana’. They discussed issues relating to insecurity and the professional nature of the security systems. Annie, the host queried Lawuratu on why some security personnel don’t look like they have to. According to Annie if such a person questions her on the road without an ID she will drive away.
“That will be overstretching it. As a journalist if you go doing a high profile investigation, will you go like this? Will you go like the Annie dressed like this? I might even pass you without even knowing. The police have various departments, intelligence, anti-terrorism, cybercrime etc. We have had several cases where police pose as prostitutes, criminals to bust syndicates” Lawuratu said.
It is curious to know that undercover agents don’t go in uniforms and yet the ones we see are in uniforms. When did new recruits start be left to have beards and do undercover? What happens if people take advantage of this to commit crime?
